Bitcoin – The Currency of the Internet

Anyone calling Proof of Keys a “bank run” is confusing banks – who give loans and are fractional reserve by nature – to exchanges and wallets which make money on trade and transfer fees and should always be 100% solvent.

Bitcoin – The Currency of the Internet

I used Western Union to wire 4000 dollars to my family back in the Middle East. I paid 78 dollars in transfer fees and 116 dollars in currency exchange fees. Let that sink in

I also choose the cash option if I were to go with a debit card the fee was going to be 320 dollars

Do you see the money being made? Does it make sense now why they try to fight a public ledger that anybody can view and use?

Borderless currency without those greedy entities telling us what to do

I’m butthurt

The real wealth transfer from bitcoin comes at the flat end part of the adoption S-curve when Hodler's use their BTC to purchase productive capital assets and then earn BTC with them. (reddit.com)

It happens a little at a time but this is how the economy switches to BTC and how the actual transfer of real wealth happens, people trade it for BTC voluntarily.
